Bao concept BunCo makes its UK debut

The new outlet is due to open in London later this year.

The brand will take a 1,000 square feet unit spread across ground floor and mezzanine levels. Originating in Istanbul, Turkey, the new site located at 22 Monument Street will be the brand’s first in the UK. BunCo’s primary offer will be steamed far Eastern buns known as “Bao” made with completely natural ingredients and combined with untraditional fillings such as falafel, fried chicken and tuna.

BunCo managing partner Baran Dumanoglu said, “BunCo was founded with the intention of bringing a unique interpretation to bao buns. People are bored of eating the same things so using quality and tasty ingredients, we have revolutionised the street food culture in Istanbul, and can’t wait to share this with our new customers in London. Opening our second outlet in a new country is a big step, but Shelley Sandzer have been brilliant advisors throughout this process and secured the perfect City of London location.”
